Nothing to brag about but it's getting me through the first year.

ok, as you can tell I'm not a computer guru. Try this again...

Ah screw it. Was going to try post a couple other pics as well but I need to figure out how to resize the pics without making them micro pics. I'm all ears if anyone has any advice.

Don't sweat it about not having the biggest or most glorious. I have a John Deere L110 rider, not dissimilar to what you have. I also have an eXmark metro 36" walkbehind, a Toro 22" with the personal pace drive system, and an assortment of less-than-glam 2-cycle items.

It aint what you have, it's what you do with it.

What do you mean nothing to brag about, have you seen some of the stuff these other guys brag about, looks like a pretty good set-up to me, never put yourself down, if you do it makes it easier for others to keep you down. Hold your head up high and always be proud.

sbvfd592, I would appreciate that. What's your email address?

Eastprolawn, I'm actually pretty proud of what we/I have accomplished so far this year. Didn't know what to expect for my first year and all in all it's been much better then anticipated.

We started out with the trim mower, Craftsman trimmer, Homelite blower and JD L120. Now I have the Snapper 52" Z, Echo Trimmer, Echo PB603 backpack blower, and the same trim mower. The truck is a 2000 4x4 Silverado with custom paint & graphics, which hopefully will not be my work truck next year as I'd like to get an older 3/4 ton. My truck now is paid off so won't be such a tough task to add the 3/4 ton. Will be putting a Blizzard plow on for this winter.

That's my soon to be 3 yr. old son Ben sitting on the Z. He insisted on having his wheelbarrow in the picture also. Quite the kid, love him & and his 7 month old brother more then anything.

how do you like that snapper?

thats just about what I started with a year ago, save the blower. The craftsman trimmer was about 10 years old and didnt owe me a thing, so I bought a stihl. The trim mower was some no name k-mart brand my grandpa bought randomly one day, and instead of a JD ride on, I had a craftsman 42".. still have it actually, use it to trot around the yard.

Looks good to me!

Love the Snapper. I was a little concerned that the 21hp Kaw could be underpowered (52" cut) but I've cut some 2ft. stuff and had no problems whatsoever. I demo'd Exmark, Dixie Chopper, Hustler, JD, & the Snapper. I would say it was just as good as the Exmark and Hustler, tad better then the JD and beat the crap out of the Dixie. Not to say Dixie is bad or anything but just didn't like the overall handling of it, seemed light also. Nobody could ever go wrong with Exmark or Hustler, just a bit spendier. And since this is my first year I wanted to use money towards a couple other things as well.

Very happy with the new Snapper Z. I'll post a couple pics when I get it figured out. Got some of my shop (you can see it in the background of the small pic above) and a couple accounts that I cut.
